About the district
Woodbridge Township outperformed state rates for poverty and median income while lagging behind the state rate for higher education achievement in 2010. The town had a poverty rate of 5.4% in the 2010 U.S. Census while the state rate was 9.4%. The 2010 U.S. Census calculated Woodbridge Township's median income at $78,446 while the state median income was $71,180. The percentage of city residents over 25 years old with undergraduate degrees (34.6%) is below the state average (35%).
Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin rather than a race. Citizens may report both their race and their place of origin, and as a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table may exceed 100 percent.
